FO: Jamaica Log Cabin
This started out following the Log Cabin arrangement called Moderne Baby Blanket by the Mason-Dixon gals. I had to tweak my logs due to yarn constraints. But, it used up a boatload of bulky weight yarns that had been in YARN JAIL since forever. I purchased new yarn for the black border.
Total dimensions: 46"x70" (long enough for a good nap!)
Yardage: 2,216 yds (bulky weights)
Needle: US11 (24" circs to start out and 32" circs at the end)

That's really lovely! You should be a color designer for folks that are 'handicapped' in that area.

Congratulations on all the destashing.

Beautiful! It would make a great play mat for a baby -- the colors are so bright and pretty. Did you weave in the ends as you went along?
